Obama Is Really Pissed Now

"He said -- he has been in a whole bunch of different meetings -- clenched jaw -- even in the midst of these briefings, saying everything has to be done," Gibbs said. "I think this was an anecdote shared last week, to plug the damn hole."


Last week he was clenching his jaw. He even said damn. That display of anger didn't seem to get people moving so he is going to kick it up a notch.

"I don't sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar, we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers -- so I know whose ass to kick,"

In the interest of brevity, I won't bother with the notion of Obama kicking anyone's ass. The thought of him beating up one of these oil workers is just too silly.

Can anyone actually tell me what the statement even means? Does he want to kick the ass of the person with the best answer? Why are we just sitting around and talking? Even if we are planning on kicking someone's ass later. Shouldn't we be doing something to stop the leak?

I think Obama may be getting a little worried.

A month and a half after the spill began, 69 percent in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll rate the federal response negatively. That compares with a 62 negative rating for the response to Katrina two weeks after the August 2005 hurricane.

He is taking a double hit here.

First, this does not help he keep control of Congress and if he loses Congress, his ability to destroy the country could be severely damaged.

Second, his legacy is nearing tatters 16 months into office. This is a big deal for a narcissist like Obama. He came into office being called a freakish clone of FDR, Kennedy (the good one, not the fat drunk), and Lincoln. Now he's looking like he may have to struggle to achieve Carter status.

Quite frankly, if I were not even the man Carter is I would be pissed too.

zero deserves every bit of criticism for this, back when Bush was in charge, him and his buddies were laying into Bush for not stopping the hurricane.

it's your turn now zero, karma the vicious b!tch is back, pucker up chump, it's your ass that's getting a kicking now.

Karen Howes said...

MK's right... if Bush could be blamed for Katrina, Zero can get blamed for BP's spill.

Or... wait a tick... let's blame Bush for the spill too!

Katie said...

Oh don't worry, plenty of people have blamed Bush for the BP spill!

What a thug and a pig.

Obama means to kick the ass of private industry. Watch for him to want to 'control' the domestic oil industry, thus killing it and skyrocketing prices.

Hell, he told us he would do as much during the campaign.

You can take him out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of HIM.

MK, nice

Karen, actually some Dim Congressmen have blamed Bush

Katie, correct

Brooke, drive up prices so no one drives

LA, I have thought this before
